How to Understand Gynecomastia?

To check for gynecomastia at home, stand in front of a mirror and gently pinch your breast between your thumb and index finger.

Removal of Glandular Tissue from the Breast in Gynecomastia

One of the problems experienced in the male breast is the formation of hard tissue. This occurs when mammary glands in the breast do not produce milk, which is known as gynecomastia. To address this problem, glandular tissue can be surgically removed from the nipple line. In cases where excess fat is the issue in addition to glandular tissue, liposuction may be performed.

Liposuction Method in Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, the enlargement of male breast tissue, can occur due to poor nutrition and excess fat in the breast area. This condition can be corrected with liposuction, which removes excess fat and eliminates the issue. However, poor nutrition and weight gain may cause the patient to regain fat in the breast area.
